The great advantage of urban living is that you have all the excitement, colour and pulse of the city on your doorstep. But just because you live within walking distance of top restaurants, it doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy a home cooked meal whenever you like.

Appliances that offer a range of cooking functions, blend seamlessly with contemporary design and don't take up too much space are available from Smeg.

This Poggenpohl-designed kitchen is fitted with a range of the latest Smeg appliances. Their European styling and multifunctional appeal are designed to fit seamlessly into contemporary trends in kitchen design and in living.

The oven tower contains a convection microwave, which offers the convenience of additional oven capacity for home entertaining. Its sleek stainless steel facade matches the adjacent benchtop and complements the dash of colour provided by the vibrant red splashback.

Beneath the microwave, the Smeg multifunctional oven has plenty of safety features, in keeping with its accessible height. These include a safe-to-touch, quadruple-glazed door and automatic oven switch-off when the door is open.

While the oven tower has a distinctivepresence, the dishwasher is concealed behind cabinetry doors. The choice of an integrated dishwasher helps maintain the clean-lined, uncluttered look, popular in contemporary design.

Multiple wash programmes, orbital wash system and special insulation features ensure the Smeg dishwasher is efficient, effective and silent during operation.

A contrast to the dark, dramatic looks of the Poggenpohl-designed kitchen is the predominantly while scheme of the inner-city apartment that is also featured on these pages. The soft colour palette provides a light and welcoming ambience, making the room appear more spacious. White cabinetry and natural stone benchtops are punctuated by the clean-edged appeal of this selection of Smeg appliances.

These include the integrated dishwasher, microwave and ventilation hood, which maintain the design integrity of the light-coloured cabinetry.

Appliances that are on display, such as the Smeg oven and cooktop, have been chosen for their smooth visual appeal. The cooktop is created using a single press stainless steel sheet, which makes it easy to clean and maintain.

The discrete appearance of these Smegappliances disguises a range of functions. The Smeg underbench oven has five cooking functions, plus defrost. The versatile Smeg cooktop can be set for natural gas or LPG.

In addition to creating designs in sync with apartment trends, Smeg has an ongoing commitment to provide appliances for the contemporary family home.

The warm hue of the timber floors in this kitchen is visually matched by the light-coloured underbench cabinetry. Its horizontal lines are complemented by the placement of the Smeg oven, microwave and integrated dishwasher beneath the two benchtops. The Smeg microwave is surrounded by a stainless steel trim kit, which makes the appliances appear to fit exactly its niche.

The double refrigerator in stainless steel has an ice-maker and water dispenser. An exterior hatch door provides access to frequently used items without the need to open the entire fridge door.
